AppleJack 1.6 for Snow Leopard
Authored by: gmachen on Jul 13, '10 02:09:06PM

Applejack says repair disks, in the *plural.* Does that mean it will automatically repair all attached external disks? Repairing anything but the bootup disk is difficult to do manually with fsck, involving determining the volume mount name with other commands. Is Applejack doing all of this?

on the sourceforge-applejack-forum the developer has already clarified that disks (plural) is a typo that he has corrected: disk. https://sourceforge.net/projects/applejack/forums/forum/271611/topic/3769264

Thanks, Thomas U. Actually, the thread you mention was started by me yesterday, right before I came here with the same issue. (I suppose that, strictly speaking, that makes me guilty of the breach of netiquette known as cross-posting, but in my defense I wouldn't have done so had not this thread greeted me upon my arrival here on the same day; I think this question is of such importance and of particular interest to readers here that you all otherwise may have missed it.)

I urge everyone to follow Thomas U's link, because the developer in his reply moreover goes beyond the call of duty and spells-out the complete procedure for determining all external hard disks extant and how to make fsck repair them while booted in single-user mode. Very handy to have in one's bag o' tricks.
